dhcp client not getting IP from dhcp server

configured dhcp server.

# cat /etc/dhcpd.conf
ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;

subnet netmask {

# --- default gateway
option routers;
option subnet-mask;

# option nis-domain "domain.org";
# option domain-name "domain.org";
# option domain-name-servers;

option time-offset -18000; # Eastern Standard Time
# option ntp-servers;
# option netbios-name-servers;
# --- Selects point-to-point node (default is hybrid). Don't change this unless
# -- you understand Netbios very well
# option netbios-node-type 2;

default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 43200;

clinet is also fedora -2 . i used # netconfig to configure dhcp client options . when i use # ifconfig , i donot get a ip from the dhcp server. i get the same old static IP which was earlier configured. why is it so ? how can i get a ip from the dhcp server on the client ? in windows , .....ipconfig /flushdns or ipconfig /renew or is used.

So you have set your ip still staticaly and then want an ip dynamically? You have to make sure that your client asks the server for a ip, instead of using the static one, I did this with the gui-tool system-config-network

no, i have not configured static ip. in # netconfig, i clicked on "obtain ip thru dhcp". i mean to say , before touching this dhcp thing, i had configured static ip on the client. i am still getting that old ip even if i have configured for dynamic.
